What makes you, you? Clothes? Hair? Beliefs? Make-up?

Explore objects from all over the world and discuss how people express their identity. Handle real Museum objects such as an initiation mask from Sierra Leone, a Native American headdress, henna patterns and a Zulu love token. Share your ideas and experiences about what makes us human.

About Horniman Museum and Gardens.

Matilda The Musical Logo

The Horniman connects us all with global cultures and the natural environment, encouraging us to shape a positive future for the world we all share.

Learn about their world-class collections and discover information about world cultures, music, different species and the natural environment we all share.

There is more that unites us than divides us, and this can clearly be seen when looking at the 350,000 or so objects in the Horniman collections.
